Kaiser South Sacramento

1 post in this topic

Hello All!

I just went to the Kaiser South Sacramento orientation on October 27th and have my appointment with the Surgeon (Dr. P Yenumula) on this upcoming Friday (Nov. 4). I'm hoping that I will be considered for surgery despite my lower bmi. I am currently at 5'2" and weight 200 lbs. My doctor began blood pressure meds for hypertension at my referral appointment but seemed to think that I wasn't a very strong candidate for WLS. My bmi is slight under 37 so I know I qualify bmi wise. Anyways, I was wondering if there are any other people out there who are beginning the process with Kaiser South Sacramento like me. I'm very excited to have Dr. Yenumula because he seems very compassionate and non-judgmental! My husband is very supportive of my pursuit of weight loss surgery but my family is not. They keep saying that I'm "not that fat" and just need to try harder to loose weight. As it stands now, I walk 15k steps a day and eat a well balanced diet of 1200 cals a day. I also do 30 mins of cardio 5 days a week. I feel like the harder I try, the less weight I loose!

Any KP South Sac peeps out there?!?
